As a professional woman and military spouse, I understand the challenges of life stressors and changes.
Are you a professional woman struggling to balance a demanding career, home life, and life stressors? My focus is supporting women in reducing stress, anxiety, or depression from daily demands or life transitions like divorce, grie, career changes, or moves. Perhaps you're struggling with relationships, caregiving, & overworking. I focus on working with professional women, including military professionals and spouses, to release the overwhelm, regroup, and find a new, peaceful, and more balanced way forward. Via on-line therapy, we'll identify your main concerns and use your strengths to develop a practical plan for reducing pain.

I am a single mother; a woman of color over 40; a military veteran & a healthcare professional.
My ideal client is one who shows up ready to do their work. They may not have clarity or insight about what should happen next, but they know that they want to feel better &/or have their lives function in a better way. That’s a client who makes my work easier. I know that they will match my efforts. My second ideal client is one who has had a not-so-good or effective therapeutic experience in their past, but they’re willing to try again.

I've helped parents, retirees, Veterans & students.
Do you worry that you are not a good enough parent, partner or friend? Do you have trouble getting to sleep when you are overloaded with thoughts about mistakes you've made? Do you wake up most mornings feeling depressed or anxious? Are your moods swinging- you have a short fuse- or are you shutting down? If yes, you could be suffering from depression & anxiety. The cause could be chemical-due to a family history or it could be situational-due to a loss or traumatic event. Traumatic events include becoming a caregiver to a family member with mental illness.

Additional expertise includes child sexual abuse and its sequelae, and military families.
I enjoy working with adolescents and adults around a variety of issues, including life transitions, anxiety, depression and trauma.

My approach involves joining with clients with curiosity, gentle humor, and warmth. Treatment approaches follow theory, best practices, and is practical. Clients typically report improvement after a few sessions.

I have 5+ years of experience treating personnel at a federal agency and consulting on workplace concerns, and am familiar with the military and IC.
Many of us keep our distress to ourselves, believing that seeking help is a sign of weakness or skeptical that we can trust a stranger. I offer a non-judgmental and culturally sensitive space to explore your concerns. Together we can begin to understand and improve your outlook and mood, whether you struggle with depression, anxiety, dissatisfying relationship dynamics, parenting issues or stress.

I have extensive experience helping civilians, military personnel, and veterans recover from trauma.
Are you struggling with memories of a traumatic event, anxiety, low mood, irritability, hyper-alertness, sleeplessness, or bad dreams? After a trauma, some people have trouble re-engaging with their lives and their loved ones. When the world just doesn't seem to make sense any more, it can be hard to reach out. Recovering from trauma can be challenging, but there are therapeutic techniques that can help. Finding the right approach and the right therapist are essential to alleviating traumatic stress symptoms and to helping you reconnect with family, friends, work, and life.

Military vet's: ask about free trauma treatment via Headstrong Project.
Are you a professional in the DC metro area, thriving in some areas of your life, but feeling "stuck" or "in the dark" in others? Are you grappling with a recent loss, a major decision or life transition, trauma, grief/loss, or symptoms related to anxiety or depression? Do you want more for your life, your career, your relationships? Sometimes the things that happen to us can lead to negative beliefs about our selves/our world- which seem to get in the way of living the lives we've always wanted. You are more than capable of untangling these beliefs.

I have an extensive background in the military , veteran, and first responders population, but I understand that trauma, anxiety, and depression affects all populations.
Many times we tell ourselves that we are not enough, or we are unworthy unless we are placing others first. This can lead to negative thoughts, low mood, insomnia, excessive worry and planning, or feeling on edge as you wait for the next difficulty to arise. In addition, it may feel like a never-ending battle of being overwhelmed and underappreciated in work and personal life. Now is the time to understand that you are worthy, it is okay to express your needs, and placing yourself first with therapy is a healthy path forward.

What type of Bethesda mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.
How to find a therapist in Bethesda?
When looking to find a therapist, it is certainly important to consider training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
